As you've probably heard by now, Mike Daisey was recently harrassed in the middle of a performance, evidently by a bunch of bonehead religious zealots. Mike reports:
"Thursday night's performance of INVINCIBLE SUMMER at American Repertory Theatre was disrupted when eighty seven members of a Christian group walked out of the show en masse, and chose to physically attack my work by pouring water on and destroying the original of the show outline.
"You can read about the incident, the aftermath and its consequences, as well as view YouTube footage of the whole thing going down, here:
"...it's a sobering reminder that speech is never free unless it is defended ardently, and that even simple civility isn't simple when intolerant extremism is involved."
Indeed it is, Mike.
